Welcome to Halibut University, the No. 1 place on the Internet to find tips on locating and catching halibut.
Halibut U. was created by the top halibut fishing guides in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California. The site is regularly updated with tips and feature articles, photos of trophy catches, new recipes, and reports from the halibut grounds along the West Coast.
New product reviews, on-the-scene photo essays from the best halibut fishing destinations, recipes from the top lodges in Alaska and British Columbia are added regularly.
Halibut U. also has the latest information from the world famous halibut derbies in Homer, Seward and Valdez, with results from previous seasons and entry forms for the 2011 derbies.
New features, including nautical charters with halibut hot spots, how-to videos and the 2011 season forecasts and regulations will be added soon.
Where's the best place to go for trophy halibut? Homer? Kodiak? Sitka? You'll find big halibut in all those places, but nothing like what happens in Gustavus.
Located next to Glacier Bay National Park in Southeast Alaska, Gustavus is where the biggest halibut in the world are caught each year. No place produces more 400-plus-pounders than Gustavus. That's where a 450-plus-pounder and possible world record was released a few years ago (above photo) by Capt. Forrest Bradin, and where Capt. Justin Park (upper right) guided a customer of Alaskan Anglers Inn to a 466-pounder last August.
200-pounders are common, 300-pounders are taken several times a year, and a few over 400 are landed each season in Gustavus.
